A senior Hemet woman who reportedly was tied up and doused with bleach during a brutal burglary involving a 15-year-old boy inside her home showed stable life signs today, a police spokesman said.

But the victim, who police believed was 87, was listed in critical condition at the hospital where she was taken following the predawn break-in Thursday by two juveniles, Hemet police Lt. Dean Evans said.

Dispatchers received a call at 3 a.m. about a burglary at the Camelot Independent Living Facility at 800 West Oakland Avenue, Evans said.

The victim awoke to find the youthful suspects in her home, one of whom beat her. The suspects initially evaded capture but six hours after the attack, police arrested a 15-year-old boy following a struggle with officers in the 1000 block of State Street.

The boy, whose name was not disclosed because of his age, could face charges of first degree burglary, torture, elder abuse and mayhem, in addition to attempted murder. He remained in custody Saturday at a juvenile hall facility in French Valley, Evans said.

The second juvenile suspect remained at large, Evans said.

Surely these kids will got o juvey and be out at 18. These boys have no morals and no human compassion. I fear to think what they will be capable of in adulthood

try them as adults and a minimum sentence of life without parole as punishment. Nothing less will be justice. This poor old lady will live the rest of her years in fear because of these 2 scum bag low life monsters . They should have the same. Justice is the rest of their lives will be at least 10 times longer than the rest of the victims life and they deserve to suffer every day of the rest of their lives in jail confined like the rabid animals they are
